Maryland Fusion Center - Insight
More recently, conservative libertarians have expressed fears that MCAC is using its LPR technology to track gun owners traveling through the state. John Filippidis, a Florida man with a concealed carry permit, was driving, unarmed, with his wife and daughters in the family SUV to a Christmas gathering in December 2013 when he was stopped by Maryland transportation police outside the Fort McHenry Tunnel in Baltimore:
Retreating to the space between the SUV and the unmarked car, the officer orders John to hook his thumbs behind his back and spread his feet. “You own a gun,” the officer says. “Where is it?”
“At home in my safe,” John answers.
“Don’t move,” says the officer.
Several hours later, after multiple police had unpacked and inspected his entire minivan, Filippidis was sent on his way with nothing but a warning. Maryland authorities have never revealed how they knew he owned a gun.
You know what one never finds online? A website or blog, even a commentary, from an active or recently retired LEO who does a Snowden on the ways and means and methodologies being implemented by FedStateLocal.Gov entities.
Using the above example - not one LEO has ever crossed the Thin Blue Line and told the public how they knew the guy from Florida - a thousand miles away - owned a firearm and had a carry permit.
I hope that informs your thinking as you consider what Evils this way come.
Here's the entire piece on the Baltimore Fusion Center.
